The most stylish accessories to tackle bitter cold weather

Outdoor temperatures feeling like -10°, and heating units turned on full blast at the office: without even watching the weather report, it’s hard to figure out how to dress, and we are almost tempted to give up —in terms of style.

Yet, when you start thinking of it, Winter looks have a higher fashion potential than in Summer with more layering, shapes, materials than during the warm season. So, to wake up the glam Parisienne sleeping inside you, it’s high time to slip on a snuggly warm poncho, an XXL scarf, a warm bonnet or a pair of lined boots... Here is our selection of new trendy musts that are going to make you enjoy very cold weather
